The recent deaths of Bernie Mac, Isaac Hayes, and Sandy Allen bring to mind the old saying that celebrity deaths come in threes. This is exactly the sort of saying that seems too random to be true, but once you have heard the saying you cannot help but notice that celebrities do seem to be dying in threes.
Of course it’s not particularly true. Someone over at Cockeyed Science took the time to run an experiment a couple years back, but the mind does work in mysterious ways.
In any case, rest in peace, Mr. Mac, Mr. Hayes, Ms. Allen–you will be missed.
